30 Signs of a Toxic Friend
Please note that although I am studying Psychology, I am in on way a professional (yet). This list is based on personal experience and literature that I have studied in my free time. I noticed that not a whole lot of information is out there related to toxic friendships due to toxicity often being discussed for romantic relationships. So here is my list, which I may continue to add to in the future.
1. They don't stop when you ask them to.
Consent is not just for romantic relationships. Consent is for friendships too. If you ask them to stop invading your space, stop talking about a personal piece of information that you told them about, they do NOT respect you as much as they should.
2. They compliment you one day and criticize you another to keep you on your toes.
Healthy friendships are not supposed to be rocky. Just like any relationship, you may have your arguments, but if your friend is deliberately trying to mess with you constantly to keep you on an emotional roll
